Fall & Winter Farmers Markets in Portland

Many of Portland’s abundant farmers markets have closed for the season. And although people often associate farmers markets with spring and summer’s bounty – berries, stone fruit, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, peas … Oregon’s ability to provide farm-fresh harvest is far from over. There are many farmers markets in Portland that are open through fall and even into winter, and they boast pears, apples, brussels sprouts, collards, kale, winter squash, sweet potatoes, walnuts, and so much more! In addition to fresh produce, you can find artisan cheeses, cured meats, bread and pastries, pastured eggs, specialty meats like goose and rabbit, pickles and preserves, wine and liquors, as well as non-edible gifts. Many of the markets also have vendors selling hot food and beverages. Summer may be over, but the fall/winter market season has just begun.

For each farmers market in this article, I have listed the location, day of the week on which the market takes place, and the nearest TriMet bus/MAX/streetcar stops. Pay close attention to the dates of the markets. Some of them transition to every other week, or even just one day in the season. For easy trip planning assistance, visit TriMet.org and enter your starting location and the location of your desired market for a detailed trip itinerary.
